Blind people on psychedelics?
    #2741834 - 05/28/04 04:23 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I just want to know what blind people may or may not see in their dreams or more interestingly hallucinogens?
I mean if they were completely blind from birth and had no concept of colours or anything visual?

Could they visuals they have be considered more "spiritual" as it would definetly not be any form of images reproduced in their mind that had actually been seen with their eyes?

Any ideas, experiences with blind people, let me know. :laugh:

i've wondered this one myself
and my guess was that they just think fucked up shit
and trip out mentally
although the question of CEVs pops up
like i said just a guess

Oh man I wish someone on here was blind and could tell us, Ive pondered this same question a couple of times. It would be interesting too know how it affects them.

I work with visually impaired/Blind people and have wondered this myself. I know that recent studies have shown that blind people use the parts of the brain reserved for the understanding of visual information. Nothing conclusive has been shown but it would lead you to believe that they are processing information in those areas using the other senses.
What we are processing as visual information may come to them in other ways. There are very few people that are "blind" in the truest sense. Most have some vision or light perception that would influence how the information was processed as well.

I think what hes saying that although blind people cant see, their eyes still respond to light and darkness. I talked to a blind lady back in college and she says she can see light and dark. Try closing your eyes, same principle

if a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it does it still make a noise?

I've heard of people who can actually "see" sounds as colors. Perhaps in a deaf person the shrooms can mess with the brain so that non-visual sensory simuli get converted into visuals.

Thats a good question, when I'm on shrooms I sometimes have auditory hallucinations, never really smell or touch though that I've noticed, but since blind people use more of their brain for there other senses, I'm guessing they'r hearing touch and smell would get all happy. Would be interesting to find out from first (or second) hand experience though.

I don't know, but on that note-- I've been wondering how a blind person would experience a full dose of injected DMT.

That is a very good question.  Especially because their other senses are intensified.  That would be interesting to find out how intense of visuals they would see on DMT!!!!!!!! :eek: :eek: :eek:

Wow, this is a great question.. very interested.. I must go on a voyage to search for a blind person willing to try a hallucinogen.. hehe :smile:

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein
